Poured cloudy dark brown color with an average off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Solid nutmeg, ginger and yam aroma. Moderate body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy spicy sweet flavor with a medium bittersweet finish of moderate to long duration.
Solid seasonal beer.

Murky brownish red. Aroma is strong spice, pumpkin pie, and a pile of newly raked leaves. The flavor is all about the Yams. Similar to a pumpkin beer. Lots of great thanksgiving spices in here. Perfect for the holidays.

Bottle, thanks to shigadeyo, alexsdad06, or Tmoney 99. Pours a warm brown color . Aroma is Aunt Diana’s kitchen at Thanksgiving. Sweet yams and brown sugar really stand out, along with notes nutmeg, corriander, ginger, maple syrup, and sweet malts. On the palate, it is warm, but smooth. The flavor really brings out the maple syrup and yams flavor. Very sweet, but very good.
